Chests with eyes? I thought chests only had teeth!

These eye chests can be opened using the Disillusionment spell on the player in Hogwarts Legacy. This will make the player temporarily invisible, allowing you to sneak up on the chest, leaving the chest's eye unable to see the player. It is also possible to use an invisibility potion to open the chests. The player can then safely open the chest and reap the rewards. 

These chests are found throughout Hogwarts and the surrounding open world, typically containing a large number of Galleons which can be used to purchase new equipment or resources in Hogsmeade. These chests will glow when using Revelio, be sure to use this spell regularly to locate chests and other rewards.
